Modern Style Houses





Building Styles





The modern era started in the 1920’s with the rise of the Bauhaus movement in Germany. The modern styled home has evolved through the years to modern contemporary and so many other styles. The base of a modern styled home is the concrete flat roof, large windows, smooth plastered finish (inside and outside of the house), aluminum frames and floating rooms. With a modern home comes technology. This means smart home automation: from lights that go on automatically to automation in the garden. Smart home systems are very popular in these home styles. Landscaping is also an intricate part in modern architecture - infinity pools that looks like the pool goes on forever, plants that are “water wise” like Aptenia Cordiflia, Dietes, Aloes, Agapanthus and many others. A variety of roof structures can be used with modern architecture, like the lean-to-roof structure covered with IBR Chromadek sheeting.
